Cup Heats - Mixed fortunes

There were mixed fortunes for HMAC's senior teams in the Gold & Jubilee Cup heats at Battersea today. The men qualified easily for the semi-finals, placing runners-up to Woodford Green & EL, with only pole vaulter Kevin Tufton claiming first place points. But the women drew tough opposition and could do no better than fourth. Debbie Sullivan (3000m) and Kate Brewington (100m hurdles) were victorious.

Southern Women place second - but go top

In a top of the table clash at Guildford today Havering Mayesbrook’s Southern Women’s team just lost out to Windsor S, E& H in a three-way fight. But as league positions are based on event points, rather than match points, HMAC should tonight find themselves on the top of the Division One table, as Windsor's three point winning margin  was not enough to bridge the 9 point HMAC lead after the first round.


Lauren Deadman - 3000m PB
